The American Business Women’s Association, Granite City Charter Chapter was represented by Sheree Barnard. They presented the SCC Foundation with a check for $6,000.
Foundation Director Sheila Franklin said, “Without the kindness, generosity, and philanthropic heart of those in our community, many students would not be able to achieve their educational goals and ultimately their career goals. We are so fortunate to be in a position to facilitate these scholarship monies with students in need.”
Surry Community College opened in 1964, and the Surry Community College Foundation was established in 1966 to provide financial support to students and the college at-large, promoting educational opportunity for students. As a part of its mission, the SCC Foundation administers numbers of student scholarships sponsored by individuals, civic organizations, and business/industry partners. SCC serves around 3,000 curriculum students and 12,000 Workforce, Technologies and Community Education students annually. SCC enables students to follow their educational dreams through transfer to four-year colleges and universities, as well as technical programs leading directly to the workforce.
